Help students learn how to evaluate online sources with this webquest and game for grades 7-10 ELA. Students will learn how to use the C.R.A.P. protocol to evaluate online sources of information. C stands for Currency. R stands for Relevancy. A stands for Authority, and P stands for Purpose.
Includes two lessons. On day one, students will practice evaluating one criteria of the C.R.A.P. protocol at a time in a webquest. Students will be so engaged as they encounter interesting websites to evaluate!
On day two, students use the C.R.A.P. evaluation protocol in a stations game with a group. Students visit ten stations, working through the evaluation process and trying to identify all of the fake news. The students who identify the most fake news (and throw it in the Fake News Trash!) win Fake News Detective badges!
This two day lesson includes:
- Student worksheets
- Detailed lesson plans
- Links to real news and fake news sources
- Exit tickets for reflection
- PowerPoint to guide students and teachers through each lesson
